Would You Rather Game - Bible Version

M&H Staff

There are few ice breakers for youth groups and Bible studies as simple and fun as "this or that" questions, sometimes known as "would you rather?" Living in a world where community is becoming more of a rarity, gathering together to discuss God's world and enjoy fellowship with other believers is becoming all the more improtant. Like it shares in Hebrews 10:25, "Let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near."

Here is a list of 'would you rather' questions for your next Bible study, church, women's, or youth group event! Enjoy!
